Natural villas usually include villas in mountains and villas with sea views. The design usually follows three principles: "natural materials", "thermal insulation" and "open design".
A good design project has all three aspects. Bring a villa with a sea view today.
See what an insulated open-plan villa looks like using natural materials?
Strictly speaking, it is located in South Korea, on corner between coast road and coastline. The villa has a central layout and is currently used as a guest house.
Six rectangular box-shaped buildings face sea, and most of main building is sunk into ground.
Because main body of building is attached to environmental design, seaside wind is strong, which also has a good thermal insulation effect.
The independent entrance area is built with concrete walls and walls are handmade erosion areas for plant growth.
Each unit is accessed via wooden steps cut into landscape, resulting in a porch-like structure clad in thin timber slats.
The main interior design material is concrete with light wood panels, conveying idea that man and nature are born as one.
The rooms are arranged in such a way that sea is first thing guests see when they wake up.
The open public area is an open gentle slope with natural grass at same level as coastline and is an excellent viewing platform.
